For some reason I enjoy making lists of things in my spare time, I have been working on this list of quality products (mainly tools) and I thought this would be a good place to share it.
I do not own and have not used most of the products on this list, they are companies I have found to be highly recommended and with good revues. My requirements for the list were/are that they must produce the majority of their products in the U.S. (or other country of commonly comparable quality exports). So nothing from China, Taiwan, Philippines, etc. Also, they must be available to purchase online or in stores (no small scale).
You may notice leans more toward USA made, and specifically Texas. This is only because that is where I am located.

If you would like to recommend anything to add, or if you think something should be removed from the list for any reason, please feel free to let me know! Hopefully this is useful and helpful information for you...

Ad Razor-Back tools. They're commonly found at Home Depot and Lowes. They're USA made and I've been happy with the quality. Shovels, rakes, etc.
